Puscifer Unveil Fall Tour Dates

September 4, 2009

Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle) brings his latest incarnation, the shape-shifting Puscifer, to cities throughout the Western U.S. for an evening the Las Vegas Review Journal dubbed as “a performance art spectacle equal parts comedy cabaret show, guerilla theater, lysergic animation sequences, Krautrock-inspired metallic jams and leering lunacy of various stripes.”

“Efforts to confine our beloved enigma to the Southwestern United States have been thwarted.” said Keenan. “We are compelled beyond all reason to bring the noise and share our special sauce. Although authorities suggest you be prepared for any and all possibilities, we simply suggest you arrive happy and hungry.”

While the concept for Puscifer came to Keenan in 1995, it wasn’t until 2007 that the collective released their debut album, V is for V*****, which was followed by a remix album fittingly titled V is for V*****. Valentine’s Day 2009 saw the live debut of the outfit, as the group of musicians and comedians hosted a trio of performances at The Pearl inside the Palms Casino Resort in sin-city itself, Las Vegas.

Puscifer features a rotating cast of players involved in the recordings, which includes the aforementioned Keenan as well as Mat Mitchell, Tim Alexander, Jonny Polonsky, Matt McJunkins, Jeff Friedl, Lustmord, God, Laura Milligan, Milla Jovovich Gil & Rani Sharone, Danny Lohner, Josh Eustis, and Juliette Commagere.
